The prime suspect in the assassination of the former attorney-general of Islamabad, Pakistan, is believed to be in Dubai.

Investigators have arrived in the emirate to nab  Roh Ullah - the man accused of gunning down Justice Sardar Raza Khan, reports '7Days'.

Khan was gunned down in a bungled kidnap in a leafy suburb of Islamabad last February. Witnesses said a group of men tried to bundle him in to a car but failed, and instead shot him.

Four men have been arrested and detectives believe Ullah is the ringleader and have postponed the trial until he can be brought back to Pakistan.

The Supreme Court was told by prosecutors they believe he had fled through the Federally Administered Tribal Areas in North West Pakistan into Afghanistan, before later securing fake travel documents and travelling to Dubai. Ullah, 46, has been placed on Interpol’s list of most wanted criminals with a red notice against his name.
